8789 Huge Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a richly arranges soundscape

Huge thick Manipuri with bright patina and extensive artwork. A great example of how the best quality large bowls were made in the past. – with circles and leaves outside, full rim punches and circles in the interior. The strike tone is very deep, almost as low as you’ll ever see in a Manipuri. The last five seconds of recording one gives a flavor of that note played purely with a soft mallet. The full soundscape is much more than the bass. There is a rich clarity to the primary overtone and later on in the sustain swirling notes above that. The heft of the bowl is such that you can feel the sound coming off it. Plays beautifully off the rim, easily and smoothly with leather, bass and that rich overtone. No need for a wooden ringer. With overtones at F#4, F5, C#6, G6.
